A bandwidth cap, also known as a data cap, limits the transfer of data over a period of time. This is sometimes termed a Fair Access Policy or Usage-based billing.

Data caps will put a serious limit on kids in schools that switch to tablets.

During he next 24 months, superintendents face the perfect dilemma of choosing between 'new books' at $1000 per student or tablets at $400 and a role-of-the dice on 'open-souce' written text books, apps and videos.

Suddenly data caps on those $10 broadband plans mandated by the feds for the poor to have at least 3nd rate access to the internet will be met within a day of getting a tablet and it's first mandated os upgrade.

The difference between have and have-nots is about to have a new foundation on which to grow;

data caps = education caps.

paying for packs = education caps

Caping the poor @ poor.
